Hi Zachary,

First, I'd suggest using a spell checker. Copy your text into Word or similar program, hit the spelling/grammar tool and your paragraph would read like this:

"The Pacific Theater is a first person shooter that encompasses the years 1941-45. Beginning with the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 and ending with the bombing of Nagasaki Japan on August 9th, 1945 it encompasses over thirty Blood soaked levels of unimaginably gruesome combat."

This part is not a sentence and needs to be reworded:
"Using over twenty-five weapons ranging from the long range bolt action Lee-Enfield to the deadly close range katana fight as the Chinese, British, and Americans along with a mini campaign playing as the Japanese during the invasion of China."

This is a corrected version of the last part:
'Fighting against an enemy who refuses to surrender will not be easy. Are you ready?"

If you do the corrections in Word, don't copy and paste into Yola or it will include Word formatting that messes up the look when put into your site.

Hope that helps a bit.

How is this not a sentence and also how can I get the word thing.

I was referring to Microsoft Word, a word processing program.

Another way is to use an online spell checker. If you do a search for "online spell checker" many sites come up. Any one of them would probably work. You paste in your text and it corrects your spelling.

I'm not good at explaining why that is not a sentence, but I know it isn't. Maybe someone else here can help you with that.

Hello Zachary

Most browsers have spell checking features these days. If the spell checking feature is not visible on your tool bar, check your browser preferences and see if you can turn it on there.

You could use the Firefox browser. While working in this browser, when you spell something wrong it will be underlined in red. Right-click on the underlined word and a list of alternative spellings will be suggested. To select, click on the appropriate word and your mistyped word will be replaced.

You can download Firefox for free here.

I hope this tip is helpful to you!

Zach, it might be a sentence if you intended to put a comma after katana and if you meant 'fight" as an imperative. Even if so, however, it is not a good sentence because it's long and difficult to understand.

I would recommend that you spend some time on a color scheme and that you tidy up the columns on the Pacific Theatre page. The content of your site seems quite appealing, but you really haven't done much as yet with the design.

Hi Zachary
I would suggest that your email should be slightly edited so that spammers cant see it
If you format it as "zbullock0597 [at] yahoo [dot] com" it prevents spammers from grabbing it and sending you un-wanted stuff or selling it on. I also agree with Keara, the colour and the banner could use a little more tweaking, to make it more personal and unique. Overall I quite like it! Good Work!

Hi, Zachary,

Since you asked, you do have Independence misspelled. I think you have a good idea that sounds like you will have a lot of content! Just a suggestion: try to get images of the games--images always are attractive. You can legally use screenshots of the game. Hope this helps!
